For the second year in a row, Governor Mark Gordon is donating a wild bison license to support Wyoming wildlife conservation, according to a Thursday afternoon release from the Governor’s Office. The license will be issued through a random raffle open exclusively to Wyoming residents.

“The bison is the symbol of Wyoming and a fitting hunt to raise money for conservation,” Gordon said in the release. “I am pleased to offer this opportunity to residents who care so deeply for wildlife.”

To participate in the raffle, residents 12 and over, who are eligible to hunt big game in Wyoming and meet all hunter education requirements, can visit the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) website to purchase a ticket for $10 each with a limit of one ticket per person.

The raffle winner will receive a 2020 wild bison license, but must still purchase any additional stamps and applicable licenses, the release stated. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Wyoming Governor’s Big Game License Coalition to help support efforts to sustain Wyoming’s wildlife.

The wild bison license is non-transferable, per WGFD.
